KEVIN AND KERRI TENBRUNSEL, PARENTS

Our 10-year-old daughter has been taking voice lessons with Jeanie for two years. She has grown tremendously. Jeanie fosters her love of singing, builds her confidence, and improves her technique with every lesson.

JANE ECCLESTON, PARENT

Enrolling at Bel Canto Inc was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It’s been fundamental to my growth as an artist.

MARCUS ROSE, ADULT STUDENT

My son started piano three years ago with Jeanie. I’m very pleased with his progress. The level of challenge is just right. He’s had a blast working with her on a couple of comedic monologues too. Jeanie is a true professional.

JESSICA WHETTER, PARENT

My daughter studied piano with Jeanie for over ten years. Jeanie brought out the best in Lauren, patiently encouraging her and challenging her to grow. She not only has a strong foundation in keyboard technique and music theory but also knows how to bring musicianship and artistry to whatever she plays.

PAM CONROY, PARENT

This is the best music school I have come across in the Chicagoland area, and I’ve worked with many. Jeanie’s teaching style is geared to the individual child. Her students are outstanding.

GIGI FARACHI-HARRIS, VIDEOGRAPHER

My daughters have studied with Jeanie for several years. They have learned more than solid vocal technique and acting skills. She has empowered them with confidence, patience, perseverance, and a love for music. Jeanie is a blessing. I am so glad I found her.

MELANIE BAUMER, PARENT

My daughter studied voice at Bel Canto Inc for several years. Jeanie tailors her teaching to each student. She finds the perfect mix of laughter, work, creativity, friendship, and challenge. Jeanie’s high-quality teaching far exceeded our expectations.

SHERYL NELSON, PARENT

Jeanie has been my vocal coach for several years. Her practical tips help me to sing with ease throughout my entire range. Coaching sessions have encouraged me to develop my own style, get more comfortable on stage, and look for new ways to engage audiences when I speak publicly.

RUSS RIENDEAU, KEYNOTE SPEAKER AND RECORDING ARTIST

You were an amazing teacher and mentor during the six years I studied with you. Music used to be something I did. Now it’s part of who I am. You taught me things I will remember for the rest of my life. Thank you for showing me my potential and encouraging me to live up to it!

NICOLE CHERECHWICH, OPERA SINGER

Jeanie is a remarkable teacher who always goes above and beyond to make sure her students succeed. I owe much of my success at Berklee College of Music to her. Bel Canto Inc is a truly unique and inspiring place to study music, guaranteed. You will not find a better place.
